Abstract:Aim: to correlate the colposcopic findings with biopsy in cases of abnormal cervical cytology. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective clinical study conducted among 300 women who fulfilled the selection criteria were conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Muzaffarnagar Medical College & Mahesh hospital from the November 2017 to November 2019. Patients who had pathological cervical appearance or Pap smear results of ASCUS, AGUS, LSIL or HSIL were referred to colposcopy. Results: Majority (40.0%) women were between 30-39 years of age group. Histopathology confirmed chronic cervicitis in 5 (9.1%) cases, 35 (63.6%) women with CIN I, 12 (21.8%) with CIN II, 3 (5.5%) with CIN III. The colposcopy and histopathology findings correlated in 90.9% cases. Conclusion: study demonstrated correlation between colposcopy and histology. Women with clinical diagnosis of unhealthy cervix should be evaluated by cytology to detect any premalignant or malignant lesions.
